Before I delve into the rest of the Global Travel Blogger Summit adventures, I decided to squeeze in an outfit post taken during that week. My good friend Gail of The Equinox Fashion took these photos for me, despite the very limited amount of time we had before the two of us headed over to our next destination.
Black is one of my go-to colors as you may already know, but I always love to challenge myself with other colors. This time, I’d like to introduce my new chic suede leather crossbody bag from AllSaints, It might be a bit difficult to tell that it’s navy suede in the photos, but I think you can see the color and texture of the bag in the very last one. The leather is ultra soft, and the bag itself fits everything I need for the day.
At first I was a bit unsure of pairing a navy-colored bag with a black & white outfit, but because the color scheme is so simple, it works quite well. And did anyone notice that this striped shirt is from the same brand as the white shirt in this post? I just couldn’t help myself and got the striped one too! I wore this the entire day I was sight-seeing in Hiroshima, and while it can look like a dressy piece, it’s comfortable enough to wear from day to night unlike a stuffy corporate-style shirt. And of course, can’t forget the leather jacket. I know I wear mine a little too much, but we all know a leather jacket is a must in anyone’s wardrobe, right?
Next, I will be posting about my travels in Hiroshima, so stay tuned! Have a great week.

I love AllSaints! They’ve got the coolest stuff and that bag is no exception. This is such an effortlessly chic look I can totally see myself wearing. Your style is always so on point, babe!
I love this bag! I feel like a lot of people think suede can be hard to pull off, but you show how to do so very easily. I love the entire look!
What a lovely bag! Navy was always a tricky color that scared me, but it pairs so well with black and white!
Your style is just out of this world! I never would have thought that a navy blue bag would look good with black and white but it did!! I love how sleek and classic this look is. You rock!
I love all saints except I can’t afford it. You look amazing in that jacket 🙂
I love how cool and simple your outfit is. The navy purse works great with the rest of the outfit. Also, the background looks very awesome and futuristic.
Not only am I loving that gorgeous navy bag, but I love how you paired it with the black and white despite your initial skepticism. It’s such a cute combination!

All Saints is one of my favorites. The navy suede cross body bag looks great with your black. Great choice.
that bag is sooo gorgeous! it looks super versatile too and is perfect for festival season. love how you styled it!
Looking chic in this outfit indeed. That jacket is awesome.
AllSaints is one of my go to brand for cool edgy pieces especially when it comes to leather. I love the shape and color of your crossbody, the color is dark enough to pass for black on screen, but I’m sure it looked more navy in person. I don’t think there is any clash wearing navy bag with a black outfit, it would be like a subtle introduction of a pop of color.

This outfit is beautiful girl and you look amazing as always. Have fun love.
I’ll actually begin from the end, a leather jacket is a must have in every wardrobe and preferably several of them. I also love pairing black with navy and “break the rules” saying you shouldn’t. I think that’s a very elegant way of saying “I don’t give a flying freak” and makes for a beautiful outfit. Then add stripes to that and you’ve got a killer outfit, Samantha!
You can never wear a leather jacket too much! It’s a classic piece. And the stripe shirt is also classic. Love the braiding around the navy cross body. Also a classic piece!
Never heard of AllSaints, but I’m so in love with this minimalistic and classy look.. Navy suits you really well, that’s a fact 😉 Can’t wait to read about your Hiroshima stories! XO Charissa || http://www.ladygoldapple.com ||
These pics came out really nice to say they were taken in a hurry! I have actually never worn navy with black and white, but I love how subtle the pop of color is being all neutrals. That cross body bag is definitely one I need. It’s one of my favorite styles to wear!
Such a cute bag babe!! I love the kind of navy that looks like black. The way you style the entire look is perfection and I love AllSaints I remember to know this brand for the first time in a trip to NY. They always have great things.
This whole look is very rock and role stylish. I am loving it. I also for some reason noticed your hair cut more and just love its modern and sleek look.

This is such a completely gorgeous look ! I’m so obsessed with the All Saints brand and this blazer is absolutely stunning!!
This is such a beautiful crossbody bag and color! It suits the outfit so well. I’m a lover of anything stripes and you did an amazing job styling this look!!! love all the photos and you are so beautiful!!!
Happy Weekend, Samantha!!!
I love suede bags! Mine is so lovely but I am pretty careful with it, being a lighter colour. Navy is a good choice to make sure it doesn’t mark. Actually both of my friends who have expensive Chloe suede bags have huge marks across theirs, which somehow happened not long after they got them. So sad! How cool is Gail? Love that girl!
That navy bag goes well with monotone items!!
Love this look babe! Yes, I’m currently loving navy and strips. I would totally rock this look. Cross body bags are my favorite for running errands.
I’m loving your navy bag! I’ve been on the lookout for a good navy color and all I can find was Chloe. They make a few shades of navy blue, but now I’ll have to look into All Saints. The quality of leather is superb. I don’t own anything from AS, but I know it’s going to live up to its name!
I think the whole look came out perfectly gorgeous with all these pieces together. Blue and Black go great together! Love the shape of that bag. By the way, I so agree with Kate … your hair cut is bomb!

The suede leather bag is to die for! How do you recommend maintaining it?
I remember when you wore your shirt saying that you’re not a big lover of them haha, white shirts, maybe it’s true, I see you better with this striped.one.
The purse and her gorgeous clean line makes it special and the fact that she’s in suede takes off a bit with the leather.
Navy is such a subtle color, but a gorgeous aspect! I love the stripes and the leather jacket are a really nice touch, Samantha!
